Your voice purpose

— April 6, 2022 —

Have you ever experienced that inner longing that hungers to know…

How am I supposed to use my voice? 🔮

It creeps within our consciousness, and bubbles up every so often (or sometimes very often), because it’s a really important question. But damn, the answer can seem so evasive, covert, or slippery.

So how are you meant to use your voice? 

When we try to meet the question of voice purpose at a rational, thought-based level, we begin to surmise the various ways in which we can do something useful.

I could sing this kind of music.
I could try to work with these people.
I could improve my skills.
I could perform somewhere.
I could DO something that I understand that could help me outta this confusion.

Because we typically equate having a clear function, form, or action as the means to solve our problems. 🪛

I have been asking myself the very same question for many moons. I, too, want to know, and ask the same question: Dear God, how am I supposed to use my voice?

What is the most pure, lovely, and soul-affirming way to express myself through the music that I love, and that will serve You and others at the same time? 🙏

(Oh, and if that could happen without too much stress or making me a headcase? Please and thank you. 👍)

I know the answer. And keep coming back to the same answer, with greater depth and clarity every time I ask. I have spent much time and energy in the seeking of that Answer.

But it’s so very easy to stumble through the fulfillment of that purpose. I keep thinking: there is something I should DO! 😵‍💫

Here is the reality I keep bumping up against…

What you DO can, indeed, be purposeful. But you will continue to spin your existential purpose wheels until those right actions stem from your higher calling.

Yet when you mine that vein of gold, the underlying wellspring of your joyful voice purpose—which is available to you at anytime—the way is opened and your desires morph into form. 🤲

Indeed, there is an entire universe of possibility available when you look through the lens of the heart, rather than the rational mind.

The way will be revealed, Dear One. 💗 Your task is to ask simply, listen wisely, and respond courageously to the sacred answer.
